Ok.. so I'm not going crazy then.
I did discover that if you go into the chart editor tool, double click on the right axis, then click the "Title" button, then select the "Advanced" Tab and UNCHECK the box for "hide text box," the title from my code magically appears.

So if someone can figure out how to turn off the default function of  hiding the text box on the second Y-axis title, that should do it??

Thanks for solidifying my sanity on this one!

Maarten and Robert do have a case. I cannot make the title appear on a -by- graph, either, even with the help of the dialog box.

sysuse uslifeexp, clear

gen byte dummy=_n>`=_N/2'

twoway (line le_male year)/* 
 */  (line le_female year, yaxis(2)), /* 
 */ ytitle(Left Side) ytitle(Right Side, axis(2))/* 
 */  by(dummy)

The problem is the -by()- option:

*---------- begin example --------
sysuse auto, clear
twoway scatter price mpg || ///
       scatter turn mpg,    ///
       by(foreign) yaxis(2)  ///
       ytitle("turn", axis(2))
*---------- end example -----------

Don't see an immediate solution though 
(have to leave now for a seminar).
